My Students

My students are curious, passionate, dedicated learners in the third grade. Our academy's goal is to provide a safe and emotionally secure learning environment. In addition, we focus on real-world skills, problem-solving, and how to be a good citizen.

My scholars are a creative and innovative group; though the transition to distance learning has been a challenge for them, they have met these challenges with resilience, patience, and grace.

Due to specific students' needs, and dependent upon access to materials, students have been learning through a combination of online learning, phone calls, mailed packets, and one-on-one collaboration with me.

My Project

When COVID-19 hit our state, schools were closed for two weeks. We did not know at the time that the closure would be extended until the end of the school year, and that our scholars would be learning from home for the remainder of the year.

My scholars have met the challenges of distance learning with resilience, grace, and understanding.

They have worked incredibly hard. Depending on student ability and access to technology, students are learning in a variety of ways including watching online videos, completing work mailed to their house, learning over the phone one-on-one, and more.

I hope to ensure that every scholar has access to quality, engaging, fun resources that will help them continue to learn while we are away from the school building. While this may look different for every scholar, there are a few key items that will support every scholar as we continue distance-learning lessons. I have asked for math manipulatives that come in individual student packages. This will make them easy to distribute to multiple scholars, and will also make them easy for scholars to store and access at home. We will use the area and perimeter tiles and the fraction tiles to model and practice math concepts. Students can even show me their thinking during our Google Meet lessons or by sending photos of their work.

These manipulatives come in a multi-pack with individual pouches of manipulatives inside each box. I plan to split up the box into its individual pouches and distribute them to scholars.
